Welcome from Chair of Governors

I welcome you to this website as Chair of Governors of Fladbury CE First School.  We are a small, friendly, Christian village school with close links to Church and community. As Governors of Fladbury School, we take a pride in the achievements of the children, which are brought about through the care and devotion of our teaching and support staff.

Teamwork is crucial to the success of a small school and we are delighted with the way our management team, teachers and support staff work together to provide a warm, friendly environment in which all children can develop and realise their full potential.

In this we are supported by the parents, individually and through the parent teacher friends association (PTFA). Parents give the school an enormous amount of their time, either helping out in the classrooms, or fundraising at the many and varied social events. I encourage you to come and support us at the many events which take place throughout the year and hope to have the opportunity of speaking with you at that time.

Sue Johnston, Chair of Governors
